If you remember from an earlier post I have a red and white quilt on my bed for Christmas. Been on a cleaning binge and our weather has been so spring like I decided to wash this quilt for the first time the other day. I don’t as a general rule rule prewashed my fabrics before using. Exception are my batiks. So before under taking this, I bought a box of Color Catchers. Into the machine went the quilt with Woolite, warm cycle and 4 Color Catcher sheets. I decided to check the water after it had agitated for a bit. Yikes, pink water. I added 2 more Color Catcher sheets and hoped for the best. Here’s the final outcome.
The quilt came out perfect. Did I forget to mention that with the red polka dot fabric I use Moda snow and a tonal white background. All the white stayed white. Color Catchers do work. Here’s the proof.
